Default Special tool necessary for Installing Crankshaft dampner pulley?

Hi Guys....

Is it necessary to use the special tool 6792 (Crankshaft Damper/Sprocket Installer)? It was pretty hard to remove.

I wanted to know if anybody had any success installing the dampner without 6792...and if so....what did you do?

Thanks!

No responses so I stopped at Chrysler dealer today and talked to one of the mechanics and he said they use a dead-blow hammer to install the harmonic balancers.

Dead hammer did not work at all.

The same tool used to install the crank sprocket is used to install the harmonic balancer.

Here's what you do. Tap it on with the dead blow till the threads on the crank bolt engage atleast 4 or 5 turns. Then just use the crank bolt to run it on. Do it every time and never had a problem. The hammer will not get it done plus can cause damage to the thrust bearing. There is no keyway for the crank dampner so it doesn't matter where is is.
